The Isle of Skye, Scotland 2024 Grade: Moderate to Challenging
The Isle of Skye is a truly magical place. The largest of the Inner Hebrides, it’s home to some of Scotland’s most iconic landscapes with its rugged mountain ranges, miles of dramatic coastline and captivating history. If there’s one thing about a Skye holiday that’ll leave a lasting impression on you, it’s got to be the scenery. The island is home to many majestic geological features, such as the Old Man of Storr, the Quiraing and the Cuillin. Skye’s varied habitats also mean we’ll have a chance to see amazing animals such as otters, dolphins, golden eagles, white-tailed sea eagles and puffins.
As there are so many amazing routes to choose from, the itinerary will be decided upon when we are there according to weather conditions. However, be prepared for some stunning moderate to challenging walks which may include some of the following highlights: the Fairy Pools, Talisker Bay, South Cuillin mountains, The Old Man of Storr, Corie Lagan, The Quiraing, Blaven, Macleod’s Tables.
We stay in a remote self catering house where there is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the views. The rooms are elegantly decorated and the bedrooms very spacious – ideal for sharing. 2 course evening meals are provided by our own on site cook, Vicky.
Please note that due to the nature of the island and the remote location of the cottage, there is a lot of driving involved to get to the best walks.
